Lagos is random. A little too random at times. Too many random ish happening here abeg. You can hardly go out somewhere without the weirdest thing happening to you to leave your face like 0_o and question your sanity. Just weird, weird, weird!
A few months ago, the boo had gone to use a particular bank’s ATM at about midnight because he had to go to church early the next day and he didn’t want to be delayed. He got there and the gate was locked and as he tried to get the security man’s attention, a police van pulled up behind him and about 6 officers jumped out with their rifles pointed at him and, long story short, they seized his car keys and took him to their station because according to them, it is illegal to use ATMs at midnight. Yes, they really said that. Just weird.
While he was “under arrest”, a man, who he later found out was the manager of a brothel, came to report a case with 2 suspects, one of the “ladies” at his brothel and her customer. The crime: The lady and her customer had agreed on a price for her service and the clearly inebriated customer was at “it” for a very long time without, erm, finishing,and the lady upset that he was taking too long, went to report to her manager, hence the arrest. Please note that the evidence presented was a used, albeit empty, condom.
Y’all should have seen the look on the boo’s face as he narrated this. LOL, I don’t know abeg. This Lagos is just too random.
I already posted the above and literally, 3 minutes later, some young dude walked up to where i was sat in front of the Aldre store, Adeniran Ogunsanya mall, Surulere and this conversation ensued.
Guy: Hello, sorry to disturb you but i saw you typing on the iPad and i’ve never touched one. I just want to touch it
He bends, touches my iPad, apologizes, bends again, touches iPad
Guy: My name is Kingsley. Don’t worry, it won’t disappear tomorrow
…and he strolls away while i look on in astonishment with my mouth still open.
Lagos is too random.
